Kick off the holiday season with a gratitude hike to enjoy the fresh air, amazing views and all the work that we have accomplished at the Pedro Point Headlands the past few years! We are pleased to invite you to join us for the annual Escape to the Headlands to soak up the spectacular views of the ocean, Devil’s Slide, Shelter Cove and beyond on Sunday, November 25, 2018 from 10am to 2pm. Enjoy fresh air, get outside in nature, escape the shopping, the hustle and bustle, and just be outside in a beautiful place very close to home.

Feel free to park at the North End Devil’s Slide Parking Area and walk into the headlands or enter form other safe access points. You are welcome to come at any time to the enjoy the day. PLT representatives will be on hand to answer questions near the nursery/staging area at the bottom of the South Ridge Trail from 10-2 with snacks and cider. A variety of trails offer walks of varying lengths and difficulties and we will be happy to help you find the route that is best for you! We will also lead a guided walk 2-4 mile walk to see some of the work that is ongoing and learn about potential future projects. The walk will depart at 11:00 from the nursery and go as long as folks are interested with an anticipated return time of 1:30 at the nursery (Note: This walk will be up a steep hill and is of moderate difficulty). Layers, pants and sturdy shoes are recommended. Hiking sticks, sunglasses, binoculars and cameras may be appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you there!



The Pedro Point Headlands stewardship program and this event are brought to you by the Pacifica Land Trust and supported by the Pedro Point Community Association. The work on the 250 acres of wildlife habitat is being transformed from a hodgepodge of unsustainable old motorcycle trails to safer and erosion-controlling paths with generous grants from the County of San Mateo’s Measure A funds and the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR) Division Program, along with the partnerships with the City of Pacifica and the California Coastal Conservancy.

To help preserve, protect and restore open space for us and future generations consider supporting the Pacifica Land Trust who has been protecting Pacifica Open space since facilitating the purchase of the Headlands in 1995. To learn more about our ongoing stewardship and restoration efforts, go to or call us at 650-355-1668.
